I’ve always considered myself in the background & for most of my career, I’ve had a representative to do my pitches & presentations.
When RepArt, my former artist rep, was owned by Donna Cameron, we did not always do glamorous, high profile jobs but there was a steady flow of work.
Floor plans, maps, we sometimes did work that was mind numbingly, boring & monotonous in it’s task, but it was steady work, & steady income. It filled the spaces between the more interesting & prestigious illustration jobs that we are best know for.
I’ve worked with most of the major businesses & corporations here in British Columbia.
Of the more interesting jobs I’ve done ski maps for Tourism Canada through DDB,
illustrations for BC Hydro & BCLC,
wall murals for YVR International Terminal,
some award winning illustration for BCAA & Cruise Ship Centres.
Newspaper ad illustrations for Canaccord, Maps & floor plans for Intrawest & Mission Hill Winery, icons for Shaw & Capital One. I have done illustration, to their satisfaction, for all the major agencies & shops around the mainland.
I work a variety of styles, in a variety of mediums which I enjoy very much. No fear. Come to me with a style in mind & I will bring you that vision.
Admittedly I work best under great art direction & don’t at all mind being directed on the specifics of a clearly stated vision. Everything is better through collaboration. I can also present ideas & guidance accumulated from a long history of design & illustration work.
I will be an extended pair of hands or the mastermind & visionary. As long as it is clear as to which I’m to be. (I default to doing as directed.)
Whether standing still or animated & in motion.
To sum up I don’t balk at simple or tedious & I won’t fold under the pressure of high expectations. I’m ready for any & all.
My name is James Hindermeier & I create solutions.
It’s good to be diverse & I’ve other skills to offer.
I’ve been creating web pages since the very beginning. Yes, the beginning of web design. I think it was me & one other designer, Brent Flink, who were the first to have info web sites on the internet. Somewhere around 1994 to 1996 I believe. At the time there was only one ISP in all of Vancouver.
I wrote my first HTML in a text editor.
I’ve produced & maintained web site & newsletters through the early 2000’s & have always designed & maintained my own site & the RepArt website up until 2010.
In 2004 I developed an interface using Flash as the front end & PHP for the back, that allowed members of RepArt to upload, change & delete their own content. This software created thumbnails on the fly & maintained a SQL database of all content. At the time there was nothing like it.
I’ve progressed further since & now support W3.CSS, Bootstrap, WordPress & client pages for Shopify.
I would truly love to work with you & look forward to our future collaborations.
